I’m from a small town in Indiana. I’m female. I had no connections in the film and television industry, or in any other part of media. I’m not supposed to succeed in entertainment. But because of Creative COW, I was able to learn and share in an enormous global community while I was isolated financially and geographically from the greater industry. Because of the reach of the COW, my voice was heard and listened to early in my career. That established a foundation for me to build a successful life in Hollywood. And as I meet all kinds of people from many different backgrounds who are now able to work their way up in the industry, I know I’m not the only one who was empowered by the access given to us by Creative COW.
